Farcha/Habili Abu Fendera

Overview

Farcha is a horseshoe-shaped large plateau covered with groups of smaller coral blocks.

Description

At the edge of the plateau there is a drop off that goes down to about 50 meters. However, the more interesting section is on the plateau at a depth of about 25 - 30 meters. There you will find numerous coral blocks (ergs) of different sizes.

At the end of each "horseshoe" there are 2 groups of three habilis - that's how the ergs are called, which lie under the water surface. Since the two groups are quite far apart, you should plan 2 dives here.

You can be dropped with the zodiac above the Ergs and go around the blocks, which are beautifully overgrown.

Hotspots

  • Here it is also worth looking out for the smaller reef inhabitants - various species of nudibranchs are at home here. You can also find moray eels, blue spotted stingrays, crocodile fish, etc. - all the usual inhabitants of the Red Sea.
